Working with midi controllers

I've been working with my midi controllers and computer to get my live setup running. They were Launchpad and reMOTE 25SL compact. It was somewhat a painful process, it is because of one of softwares' strong point - the openness, one of the bad points - same shapes of physical controls for all parameters (it helps a lot to have one lcd on the 25SL). These together with my perfectionism had brought me many headaches. I need to remind myself from time to time, that I need to stop improving the interface, but actually practicing on it.

Back in the old days, there weren't many ways to make music. Now there are already too many ways, just like there are too much infomation everyday. The beauty of new technologies is tht people can find exact ways that fit their tastes and habits. But one must learn to renounce and keep a sober mind when seeing and trying new things.

I've ordered a tonguedrum from tonguedrum.com yesterday. And I am looking forward to it very much.

In the JAV side, the FH-26 release from Oriential Dream fits my taste nicely. The Airi Kagura release from G-Queen is great too. And the best thing could be some quality uncensored release of Rio Hamasaki.
